Banana. Caramel. Tart. Those three words are like music to my ears. Can I get an amen?
Let me explain: have you ever eaten caramelized banana? If you haven’t, you’ve been missing out. Period. If you have eaten caramelized bananas, then a big hearty hi-five to y’all! Clearly you’ve been eating bananas the right way.
This tart has a sweet, sticky caramel topping. The bananas, once cooked, are soft and are infused with the caramel-y flavor. If you eat this tart warm, the caramel is oozy and runny. If you eat this tart cool or cold, you get chewy, sticky caramel.
I ate this tart warm (and served alongside a scoop of icecream), and loved it. The caramel was still runny and the bananas still warm. I then ate the tart after it had cooled down (because stopping at one piece is totally not an option), and I loved it too. The tart was chewy and I ate the slice with my bare hands – no cutlery needed!
But best of all: this tart only needs a few ingredients, the caramel is basically fool-proof to make and the tart comes together in about 15 minutes. Perfect.
